Is it pointless to get an associates degree in liberal arts when I plan on continuing to get a bachelor's degree in psychology immediately after graduating with the AA? I'm trying to decide whether or not to wait 'till next fall to transfer or just skip the AA and transfer in the spring.
here's a little background:
I am currently at a community college and will graduate in the spring 2013 with an AA. My original plan was to go to a university in the fall 2013 to get my bachelors. but I no longer see the point in waiting for the AA when the bachelors is what I really want anyways. Eventually i'll even end up going for my masters.
Depends . There are really only two immediate benefits that can see to get an associate's degree . First, if something happens and you can not complete their higher education, will have something to show , in the form of a two-year degree , for your work . Second , many states offer generous scholarships to students who transfer from two-year schools after earning a degree. If none of these are concerns for you , it makes sense to transfer as soon as possible to a four-year university .
